Promotion-chasing ozeki Kisenosato suffered an embarrassing loss on Tuesday, when the 10th day of the Nagoya Grand Sumo Tournament finished with five wrestlers tied for the lead.

Shohozan tricked Kisenosato on the tachiai. Shohozan, who typically aims for a belt hold with his left, instead charged to his right. Kisenosato did his best to change the direction of his charge but slipped on the sandy surface and fell to his second defeat in the 15-day event at Aichi Prefectural Gymnasium.
